The Audi RS4 quattro is the top tier and highest performing version of some specific generations of the Audi A4 range of automobiles. It is a sports-focused compact executive car, produced by Audi’s high-performance private subsidiary quattro GmbH.
The „RS” initials are taken from the German: RennSport, literally translated as „racing sport”, and is the Audi marque’s highest trim level, positioned above the „S” model specification of Audi’s regular model line-up. Like all Audi „RS” cars, the RS4 pioneers some of Audi’s latest advanced technology, and could therefore be described as a „halo vehicle”.
The new Audi RS 4 Avant quattro was launched at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. It is based on the B8 Audi A4 Avant. No saloon versions of the B8 RS 4 were built.
The Audi B8 RS4 is using the Volkswagen MLB platform. It is also only available with the Dual Clutch S-tronic gearbox configuration, allowing the car to achieve 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds. Amongst the options available for the B8 RS4, are ceramic brakes, allowing the car to perform heavy braking without having brake fade.
